Earn $100 plus over $100 in freebies.It's true. You can make $100 in JFK Gift Certificates which can be used at the JFK Store or for registering to JFK programs. The JFK Store has a lot of merchandise for sale, and not just soccer stuff. The JFK Store is located in the JFK Club House. You also get a free polo shirt, a free whistle, a free air pump, a free coaches' guide to soccer and all the free coaching clinics you want. No experience required. JFK will teach you. This summer, if you coach a team, you will receive all of the above. It's a great deal worth over $200 in total. All you have to do is be committed to your team (and Club) for about an hour twice a week (yes you can still take a vacation), attend at least 2 mandatory coaching clinics on becoming a coach and how to run practices and games, do some administration work for your team (phone/email your players, fill out game sheets, complete simple player evaluation report, etc). Assistant coaches can help with any of the duties. Coaching recreational soccer is easy and fun. Want to coach? Let us know (for U4 to U18 teams, not U3). Coaches are supervised by JFK's Technical Staff. The $100 GC is given after the season to the head coach of the team after a rebate form is filled out and handed in. It can't be deducted from your current fee. JFK is unique in offering this special coaching rebate reward to attract coaches & insure these volunteers are performing up to par. After all, we want to make sure everybody's experience at JFK is a good one.

- Complete 3 hours of coaching clinics through JFK for this season.
- Properly complete game sheets.
- Assist with fund raising handouts and collections and return to JFK.

- Abide by the Code of Conduct.
- Abide by the Rules as laid out by JFK.
